I stopped in at Three Palms Brewing and enjoyed the Spiced Darkness Pumpkin Pie Stout.  I’ve tried pumpkin ale and pumpkin porter but this was my first pumpkin stout.  It was delicious.  It is a great sipping beer.   had the great pleasure of chatting with the brewery owner while enjoying my beer tonight.  He’s got a great story.  If the quality of Spiced Darkness is any indication I’d say the rest of the beers are pretty good too!  Best wishes to Three Palms Brewing.!!

I stopped in at Coppertail Brewing Company in Tampa, Florida and really enjoyed the Free Dive IPA.  It was hoppy but not too hoppy.  I tasted several of the other regular and seasonal brews and found the all to be delightful.  It was exciting to be stopping in at a brewery that is so new to the business.  If the quality of their beers is any indicator I’m sure they will do really well.

The tasting room is also a really cool place to visit.  It’s a relaxed atmosphere with ample room for a number of folks to sit back and enjoy a few beers.  They also have complimentary munchies.

I stopped in at Two Henrys Brewing Company in Plant City, Florida and enjoyed a taste of the Blueberry Vanilla Wheat which was surprisingly tasty considering I don’t typically enjoy wheat beers.  I also enjoyed a taste of the Coffee Brown which was rich with coffee flavor.  And I have to admit I tried the Badd Apple hard cider which was quite refreshing.  I recommend stopping in here.  Great beers.

Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, FL

I stopped in at Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, Florida again today.  I think I’ve stopped in here more than any other other microbrewery.  Today I tried the Sun Spear Session Amber and really enjoyed the combination of hoppiness and amber ale.  I guess that’s why I stop in here so often.  It’s a great place with great beers.

Whenever in Tampa I stop in at Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, Florida.  It’s so close to the airport that it makes for a great stop either right after landing or right before take-off – or both!  The Jai Alai IPA is a great IPA and one I’d go for anywhere.  The Humidor Series IPA was available when I stopped.  The cedar flavor mixed with the IPA was quite a complex beer.  I had to bring some home with me.  The Maduro Brown Ale is also a solid go-to brown ale that I enjoy when in the mood for something a bit malty.

I stopped in at Sly Fox Brewery and Tastin’ Room for dinner and a tasting flight.  My brother and I split the pork nachos which were outstanding – spicy and filling.  I enjoyed all of the beers I tasted.  I especially enjoyed the Chester County Brown Ale, smooth and full flavored.  I also enjoyed the Phoenix Pal Ale which was an enjoyably hoppy pale ale.  and, I really liked the 360 IPA.  In fact, I liked it so much that I bought a four-pack to bring home.  I’m looking forward to the next time we visit family in the area and stopping in again.
